Dell Inspiron E1405 touchpad does not work

So my touchpad does not work, and it doesn't show up in the device manager. In addition, my keyboard does weird things, and the system speaker keeps beeping even if I have disabled it. What do I do?

Dell touch pad not working


The touchpad on a Dell laptop is usually located under the keyboard. Moving the finger on the pad moves the pointer on the screen. The buttons near the pad act as a right and left click. Windows includes a method to troubleshoot the touchpad. In addition, if the touchpad is still giving you issues, Dell recommends draining the "flea" power the standby power from the computer to restart it. Both methods are simple and only take a few minutes.

Open the control panel from the Start menu. Click on "Mouse." This will open a window with several tabs. On the first tab, click the touchpad to open a new window to change the settings for your touchpad. You can customize the settings to how you want your touchpad to work. If this does not solve your issue, proceed to the next step. Click the Hardware tab on the screen that pops up. Select the Dell Touchpad and click "Troubleshoot." A new window will open with the Windows Help and Support Center to bring you through methods for troubleshooting the touchpad. Follow the methods described until your touchpad is working properly. Drain flea power Shut down the laptop and disconnect all external devices, such as a thumb drive, headphones and the AC adapter power cable from the system. Take the battery out of the laptop. Hold down the power button for at least 5 seconds without releasing it. Return the battery back to the laptop. Power the system on. If your touchpad still is not working properly, call Dell for customer support.

Turn your Inspiron 1525 off and remove any power cables that are connected to the device. Close the computer, turn it over and slide the battery lock button down to release the rectangular battery from its compartment on the underside of the computer. Turn your laptop right-side up and open the computer so the monitor is facing you. Insert the tip of your flat-head screwdriver in the seam between the plastic keyboard guard and the side of the computer. The keyboard guard is located just above the keyboard. Pry up on the guard until it pops out of place. Be sure to do this gently, as you do not want to damage the guard. Remove the guard from the computer and set it aside. The two keyboard screws will now be visible underneath where the guard used to sit. Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the two keyboard screws and use the tips of your fingers to lift the keyboard up from the top. Place the keyboard facedown over the touchpad and locate the thick connector ribbon that runs from the motherboard inside the computer to the back of the keyboard. Use your fingers to gently unplug the ribbon from the back of the keyboard and set it aside. Insert the tip of your screwdriver in the seam at the bottom of where the keyboard used to rest and gently pry it up. This will release the top plastic frame from the Inspiron, revealing all of the broken touchpad. Use your fingers to disconnect the thick ribbon from the side of the damaged touchpad and slide the touchpad out of the Inspiron. Slide the new Touchpad (available from your Dell retailer or online) in its place, fit the top frame in place and reassemble the computer in the reverse order you took it apart in.

Touchpad not in device manager


Hi There,
The touchpad will normally show up under input devices in device manager. If you don't see it listed, check to see if your touchpad has a manual on/off switch located on the laptop keyboard (sometimes under specialized function keys)
If a switch doesn't seem to be the issue, try reinstalling the drivers for the touchpad, which should be available on the toshiba website.

    How can I change the settings on my Dell Inspiron E1405 touchpad? I don't find "Mouse" or "Printers and Other Hardware" listed in the Control Panel. I want to speed up the movement of the touchpad but I...


    I think that the E1405 uses the Synaptics Touchpad, so the settings should be found under Start > Programs > Synaptics. However, if it is not there, then try C:\Program Files\Synaptics. The application that controls the settings should be found in one of those two places. Good luck!

    I HAVE INSPIRON E1405. HOME KEYS ARE NOT WORKING


    First boot to the Utility partition and run diagnostics on the keyboard (Fn Power button) see if they keys work correctly in the Dell Diagnostics keyboard test. If they do not, then either the keyboard or the motherboard is bad and I'd replace the keyboard first.
    If the keyboard functions normally in the DIAGs, then the issue is most likely the regional and language settings in CONTROL Panel
